Through melatonin, the pineal gland tells the brain about the relative duration of the hours of darkness and light on a period of 24 hours (daily cycle), but also throughout the year (seasonality). Thanks to its lipophilic, melatonin can diffuse easily into the body, including intracellular membranes, particularly in neurons (synapses), hence its ability to act on the central nervous system.

Travelers and people who work rotating schedules according to suffer from sleep disorders that appear to be caused by a change in their levels of melatonin. It was long thought that the production of melatonin decreases with age, but recent studies suggest that this is not the case. However, the researchers found that melatonin levels are abnormally low in insomniacs of all ages. Same is the case of fibromyalgia and depression. Prolonged exposure to electromagnetic fields can inhibit the production of melatonin. Cardiac patients have low levels of melatonin.

Another test indicates that the potential cardiovascular benefits associated with taking melatonin (lowering blood pressure) may occur in postmenopausal women after a program of hormone replacement therapy.
